When was the last time your website had a new lick of paint, giving it a fresh new look to keep up with the latest trends? When was the last time you tried something new to penetrate new markets? In the online world it’s important to stay ahead of the curve, and remain weary that it’s easy to fall behind very quickly.
With an ever changing online world the key design elements of websites, styles and technologies are constantly evolving; meaning you need to evolve with it. If you last updated your website 3 or 4 years ago, you’re probably behind on the latest trends including flat graphics and HTML5.
When it comes to checking out businesses online to order new services or products, the image of the business is critically important. Have you recently stumbled across a website which looks like it was designed in 2005 and thought, if they’re neglecting their website either they’re out of business or aren’t fully clued in? Don’t let that be your website, give it a new lick of paint frequently to keep the edge over your competitors and keep your clients coming back for more.
And you don’t have to go all out on flashy elements; just keep to the design queues of the day and remain practical.
